Septic Installs & Repairs

Cape Cod Septic Services has the equipment and experience needed to troubleshoot your system and advise you of any repairs needed.

Design/Engineering
When a septic system is found in failure, septic engineered plans will need to be created by a licensed Engineer to establish where a new septic facility can be installed on your property. It is imperative to know what you are doing when installing a septic system, and it’s best to leave it up to your licensed sub-surface sewage professional.

New Construction
We have years of experience in septic tank installation for both new construction and replacement of existing failed systems.

Upgrades
In some cases, a septic tank repair is all that is necessary.  We will evaluate your needs and make every effort possible to keep costs low in resolving your septic system problems.

Innovative and Alternative (I/A) Septic Systems – (From the Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs website)
For most Massachusetts homes without access to municipal sewers, septic systems provide for on-site wastewater treatment and disposal. However, site limitations can make it difficult to replace a failing cesspool or septic system with a conventional septic system that will meet state standards. Innovative/Alternative (I/A) systems can help address these situations:

  • They are generally better than conventional septic systems at removing solids and other pollutants from wastewater before it goes to the soil absorption system (SAS)
  • The SAS following an I/A technology can be expected to have a longer life.
  • I/A technology can also provide advanced treatment to reduce the wastewater’s nitrogen content. For this reason, nitrogen reducing systems may be required for new home construction near a private or public water supply well or other nitrogen-sensitive areas.

Whether your home already has an I/A system or you are thinking about installing one, it’s important to get acquainted with the basics: what your alternatives are, how they work, what they cost to install and maintain, what is required to stay in compliance with Title 5 (the State Environmental Code), and who you can turn to for additional information and assistance.
